What should we do if amniotic fluid level is 2.5 mm, and due date for delivery is 31.11.16.
She feels no labor pain yet.
The amniotic fluid is very low.Labour induction may be advised.Since 36 th week is running now the baby will be mature.Or the doctor may advise you to get admitted and monitor the baby s heart beat and other things continuously and any time if she feels the baby is at risk either induction of labour or Caesarian will be advised as the situation warrants.

Hi i Had intercourse once of every 2-3 days, want a baby, sperm enters many times into ovary, but still no sign of pregnancy and still menstruating, want a baby, I am a little fat (78 kg), that's why in time of straight (face to face) intercourse- my belly obstacks, so we choose for back style (dog), and I regularly pee after 1.30-2 hour of sex. My period is 29 days cycle, and its still no delay or no stop. I did pregnancy tests 3 times, every time result is negative. What I have to do- to get pregnancy. I am 20, my hubby is 30 yrs (wgt- 66kg), please help.

General Physician,
Advice: 1. Back type of intercourse is not advisable. Sperm wastage will be there. 2. Do ultra sound scan to check your uterus inside walls and the eggs fom the ovary are adequate for pregnancy. 3. Check the husband sperm count adequate to cause pregnancy. 4. Intercourse should be in full swing between 12th to 16th day fom your mentrual cycle. That is the ovulation period, after intercourse chances of getting pregnancy is there. Good luck.

Hello lybrate-user, after first trimester bone started getting develop in fetus, so need to check your calcium amount as well as your vit d3, as it is essential for calcium absorption, deficiency of both may cause the backache and pain in legs .keep a track on folic acid and iron level too. Take omega 3 fatty acid supplements after consulting with your obstetrician. Maintain happiness and stress free atmosphere around you, which is more important for the growth of baby. You can take constitutional homoeopathic medicine too after consulting an expert. Which is safe and best for the baby's future health too. Thank you.

Homeopathic Treatment for Pain in the Joints

Homeopathic Treatment for Pain in the Joints

Pain in the joints continues to bug mankind till this very day. There are different types of joint pains, which might occur all of a sudden, with no signs of receding. The most common of them all are arthritis, tennis elbow, frozen shoulder, back pain and repetitive muscular strain. These joint pains are sometimes impossible to diagnose properly by the regular modes of diagnosis. In those cases, resorting to the homeopathic mode of medication might be a good idea as it is a medication based on treating the actual cause of the disease and sustained use might result in complete remission of the pain.

Some commonly used homeopathic medications for pain in the joints are as follows:

  1. Rhus Tox: This is the most commonly used in homeopathic preparation for severe joint pains, the symptoms of which include severe pain after relaxation, pain triggered by slightly wet weather and pain after walking or running for a long time.
  2. Arnica Montana: When the symptoms are pain in every joint of the body resulting in body aches and pertaining injuries due to accidents, Arnica Montana serves as the perfect medication.
  3. Actea Spicata: This medicine is primarily used as a remedy for pains in the small joints of the hands. The symptoms for which the medication can be implemented are rheumatoid arthritis in the joints of the finger and swollen wrists after usage of the hand.
  4. Colchium: This medicine can be used in case of Rheumatoid Arthritis (inflammatory and chronic form of arthritis).
  5. Bryonia Alba: This medication can work wonders if the symptoms include severe pain in the knee joints while walking, severe swollen joints and osteoarthritis (affects the flexible tissues present at the bone ends).

However, it is always advisable to take medication as prescribed by your doctor, as the potency and frequency can only be decided by your doctor.

Taking an I pill may lead to irregular bleeding as it is a high dose of hormone. This one day bleeding is due to that. You period may be delayed and it is very difficult to predict. Some patients may get irregular spotting for few days. You have to just wait and watch. In case of doubt you can repeat a pregancy test.

Hello, PCOS or pcod s a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. The most common symptoms are: Acne. Weight gain and trouble losing weight. Extra hair on the face and body. Thinning hair or even hair loss on scalp. Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding. Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility), depression. Regular exercise, healthy foods, and weight control are the key treatments for PCOS. Treatment (hormonal) can reduce unpleasant symptoms and help prevent long-term health problems. Try to fit in moderate activity and/or vigorous activity often. Brisk Walking, jogging, dance or aerobics are great exercise that most people can do. Eat heart-healthy foods. This includes lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It limits foods that are high insaturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods. Most women who have PCOS can benefit from losing weight. Even losing 5 kg may help get your hormones in balance, regulate your menstrual cycle and can make you ovulate.

Dear lybrate-user, why do you want to abort the child? think before you decide to abort. Think of the advantages of aborting and disadvantages of aborting. The same exercise for continuing the pregnancy. Remember that there is no option with all advantages only. For the advantages of that option you need to carry the disadvantages along. You have another 4-8 weeks time to think and to act on these options. At the end of this exercise, if you plan to abort for the advantages of it, here are the disadvantages. Your health may be at risk during abortion. If the uterus does not heal well or get infected, there are more chances for tubes to be blocked. That means you may not bear a child later on your life. Remember that abortion is legalised in india. No questions will be asked. You can go to any government gynecologist and demand abortion without giving reasons. You can sign the consent form yourself, because you are major. Discuss your options with your close friend/boy friend. You will be able to hear your voice. Or write them slowly on a piece of paper and send it to me. It will help you to make informed decisions. Don't be worried about the disadvantages of your decision. You have many strengths in your life with which you can deal with those disadvantages. All the best. Get back on private consultation after doing the homework exercise. You have time. With knowledge, you will make better decisions.

Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Vadodara
Labour Pain and False Contractions - How to Differentiate Between the Two?

It is likely for you to experience false labour pain or false contractions before the beginning of true labour during pregnancy. This is called Braxton Hicks contractions, and it is the way of telling the body to get ready for the real labour pain on the day of giving birth. However, these false contractions do not indicate that the labour has started or will begin shortly.

How do false labour contractions feel like?
Women may get a tightening feeling in their abdomen, which comes and goes away, due to Braxton Hicks or false labor contractions. These false contractions may feel like menstrual cramps. These contractions are unlike true labour and usually do not cause pain. They do not occur regularly and do not get closer together. They do not last for very long or get worse with time. These false contractions may be felt during the second or third trimester of pregnancy.

The difference between Braxton Hicks and true labor contractions
There are several differences between true labor pain and false labour contractions. These are as follows:

  1. Comparing how often these contractions occur allows us to differentiate between true labour pains and false contractions. False labour contractions are irregular while true contractions occur at regular intervals. They last for over a minute, and they get stronger and closer with the passage of time.
  2. The change in these contractions are based on your movement, which allows us to differentiate between the two types. False labour contractions may end when you take a walk or rest, and stop when you change your position. In case of true labour pains, the contractions keep on continuing irrespective of any kind of movement or change in position. They do not stop even when you take some rest.
  3. The strength of true labour pain and false contractions is different. False labor contractions are weak in general and there are less chances of them getting worse. They are stronger in the beginning and gradually weaken. However, true labour contractions get increasingly stronger with time.
  4. We can differentiate between the two types of contractions on the basis of the areas which are affected with pain. False labour contractions only cause slight pain in the front part of the abdomen and the pelvis. True labour pain is much more intensive in nature. They usually begin from the lower back and move to the front abdomen region. They may start in the abdomen and move back as well.

If you are not sure and cannot differentiate between true labour pains and Braxton Hicks contractions, it is essential for you to consult a gynaecologist. A doctor will be able to identify the true nature of the contractions.

Hello, You can try if one of your tube is open. Wait for 3 months after the surgery. If you are anxious to become pregnant then get follicular monitoring tube to check if egg is forming on the side where the tube is open.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. First & foremost, I would advise that you visit your doc, in person, for a clinical breast exam first. Your doc, post evaluation, would be able to recommend the steps next, appropriately. In the meanwhile, do have a healthy and balanced diet, preferably Mediterranean, and have an active lifestyle. Do exercise, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Stay well hydrated too. Should it pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate the same. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.
